The Drexel men’s basketball team began the 2012-13 season with sky-high expectations. The Dragons were predicted by their peers to win the Colonial Athletic Association and seen as capable of making some noise near the top 25 in the nation. Instead, Drexel finished 13-18, and with its previous campaign not going as planned, the team [...]

The San Antonio Spurs may be old, but they haven’t forgotten how to get to the NBA Finals. The Spurs needed only four games to dispose of their Western Conference Finals opponent, the Memphis Grizzlies, completing the sweep May 27. Although the Spurs have not been to the finals since 2007, this is a familiar [...]
Now in the conference semifinals round, all four series in the NBA playoffs currently stand deadlocked at 1-1 as of May 8. In the Eastern Conference, the Miami Heat and New York Knicks used their second games in the series to recover from befuddling losses to lower-seeded opponents in their respective series openers. In the [...]
If you follow college basketball, chances are you have become tired of hearing the term “conference realignment.” If not, you don’t watch enough SportsCenter. While the hottest-profile realignment situation has been the disbandment of the Big East and the creation of the American Athletic Conference, Drexel sports fans know that the Colonial Athletic Association has [...]
If you watched the Drexel Dragons and George Mason University Patriots men’s basketball teams during the 2012-13 season, you would have seen a few common themes emerge. From the Drexel side, Damion Lee, a sophomore with the potential to be the best player in his conference by a mile, was painfully inconsistent without much of [...]
A typical roller coaster starts and ends in the same station. The cars pull out, climb hills, endure fear-inducing drops, but come to rest at the same station where they began. It struck me as I watched the game clock tick toward the end of the regular season March 2 that this also applies to [...]
“We had three wide-open three-point shots. Three of ‘em! … We had our opportunities, great opportunities tonight. Those last 14 seconds tonight — can’t get no better than that. I told [the players] you know, sometimes you’ve gotta make plays. To win games, you have to make plays. … We gave ourselves the opportunities at [...]
Stop me if you’ve heard this one before: Drexel’s men’s basketball team played two games this past week. They won the first one and looked pretty good defensively in a generally encouraging performance. The second game of the week was a bigger test, and after overcoming a poor start, they drew within a few points [...]
There are few cautionary tales that haven’t been written about the men’s basketball team this season. The fans of the Blue and Gold have had to take every win with a grain of salt and every loss with a dose of reality. This week brought both, and as usual, Drexel’s season continues on without certainty [...]
The Dragons finally had a legitimate winning streak. They had shut down one of the premier freshmen in the country, the freshman who now holds the highest single-game point total in the country for his class. And then in came the University of Delaware. As recounted last week, the rivalry game against Delaware was a [...]
Five wins, 11 losses. That was the Drexel men’s basketball team’s record before a Jan. 19 victory over The College of William & Mary on the road. The Dragons now sit at 9-12, still with a losing record, but after facing and knocking off some staunch competition from the league’s elite, the Dragons are feeling [...]
At some point, you learn to take the small victories without worrying about when the big ones will come. The Drexel men’s basketball team is slowly but steadily starting to pile up those small ones. The Dragons defeated The College of William & Mary 59-48 Jan. 19, finally ending their three-game losing streak and picking [...]
As the Drexel men’s basketball team traveled to Harrisonburg, Va., to take on James Madison University Jan. 12, head coach James “Bruiser” Flint was shorthanded, as the Dragons had only seven players healthy and available to play. Senior forward Daryl McCoy, who had been playing through a foot injury in the team’s previous two games, [...]
As the Drexel men’s basketball team entered Colonial Athletic Association play with a disappointing 4-8 record, the Dragons looked to extend their 16-game winning streak in regular-season conference play. First on the schedule was a trip to Georgia State University Jan. 2 to face the Panthers. The Dragons held a slim 37-33 halftime lead on [...]
Things were rolling as smoothly as possible roughly 10 months ago for Bruiser Flint’s Dragons. The men’s basketball team had completed a 19-game winning streak, which spanned the course of two months. Now, two months shy of the one-year mark of that run, the team has won just seven of its last 19 games. The [...]
Try as they might, the Drexel men’s basketball team can’t seem to get a break on the hardwood these days, and even when they do, stringing two breaks together is equally elusive. After notching a solid win Nov. 25 against Rice University to end their stint at the DirecTV Classic, the Dragons came home hoping [...]
The Drexel University men’s basketball team earned its first win of the season Nov. 17 against the rival University of Pennsylvania 61-59. However, the Dragons were unable to carry that momentum into the DirecTV Classic, losing two of their three games. The Dragons put in a more complete effort against Penn than they did in [...]
A recruit from New Haven, Conn., Tavon Allen missed his entire first year of Drexel basketball after suffering a stress fracture in the preseason. The injury, which Allen described as a “freak thing,” pushed back his debut to the court, as he was redshirted. Considering the excitement that comes with one’s first collegiate season, it [...]
It’s been a disappointing start for the Colonial Athletic Association preseason pick for Team of the Year. The Drexel Dragons dropped their first two games of the season, falling in disappointing fashion and in overtime for each game. Drexel started the season Nov. 9 with a sloppy loss, falling to Kent State University 66-62 in [...]
Last season was supposed to be the “Year of the Dragon” for the men’s basketball team. Drexel was supposed to win the Colonial Athletic Association and make its first NCAA Tournament appearance since 1996. The team won 29 games, led by CAA Coach of the Year James “Bruiser” Flint. Despite that, they failed to make [...]
